Prof. Michael Schroeder and Mahmood Nazari

At the 10th International Summer School on AI and Big Data, Prof. Michael Schroeder and Mahmood Nazari will talk about Computational Drug Repositioning with Interaction Fingerprints: Drug Discovery in the Fast Lane.

Talk: Computational Drug Repositioning with Interaction Fingerprints: Drug Discovery in the Fast Lane

Drug repositioning identifies novel applications for existing drugs. One approach exploits protein structures and the similarity of drug-target interaction fingerprints. We will sketch the idea and show examples how the method works and give an overview over the spin-off pharm.ai, which has run numerous screens with collaboration partners and in-house. We will round-off the picture with some thoughts on how AlphaFold2 can help to greatly expand the sources for drug repositioning candidates.
